Hello~ it’s the season for cuddling and tea (and swimming through flooded streets while competing with other people for a seat in a jeepney or in some cases, a makeshift boat) I stumbled upon these paints in National Bookstore in Katipunan, so i thought of trying it on my white mug, yay! Instructions said let it dry for 24 hours first before baking to set it.
I want to dip dye things. Preferably in neon. There is something about dipping things in paint (other than wasteful). It’slike an updated version of color-blocking. And neon? Neon is like the hottest summer trend this year. I wasn’t very fond of it in the beginning, but then I realized if you pair it with neutral tones (especially wood-y or natural tones/things) it looks wonderfuuuul.
So it was kind of an impulse buy when I grabbed two neon acrylic paints from National Bookstore yesterday but I just thought if I don’t know what to do with it I can always just randomly dip dye things like my pens, handkerchiefs, maybe even some rags to make them pretty….
I actually dip-dyed a Magnum stick (Magnum is a kind of ice cream sold here where the ice cream is dipped in BELGIAN CHOCOLATE. SO. GOOD.) I kept the stick because Magnums tend to get sold out a lot here and well I like collecting useless stuff. So. Piece of wood + Neon paint = Eye catching piece of wood.
I couldn’t bear the thought of wasting like a tablespoon’s worth of paint on a single stick so uh instead of leaving it to dry after I dipped it i scrapped it to get rid of the excess paint
“That isnt called dip-dyeing anymore! Why’d you even dip it in the first place?”
Because I can that’s why.
I can imagine it now, though. I want to either dip-dye or paint everything in neon. I honestly actually thought of dip dyeing our toaster. No reason other than the fact that it’s. So. Cool.
I think I should stop now.
Yes I actually painted it at the same spot where I display it. I am lazy.
Happy lazy Sunday night from where I come from :)
PS: pray for my internet that it gets well so I can actually post nice pictures in this post already!!
Yay! Not sick anymore!
